WASHINGTON, D.C. – Two senators are cocked and ready to take aim at this week’s gun control debate in Congress. Republican Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia say they have a bi-partisan deal to expand background checks on anyone wanting to buy a firearm to include purchases at gun shows and online.

Besides background checks at gun shows and online, the Toomey-Manchin proposal exempts personal transfers of firearms.

It also creates a ‘commission on mass violence’ to study the reasons for mass shootings and ways to prevent them.
